-state solution, free trade, going after terrorists in libya, has been pursued by the obama administration. they're out with an aggressive prebuttle. >> reckless. amateurish. that's what republicans called mitt romney's gaffe filled tour of england, israel and poland, when our u.s. diplomats were attacked in libya, showed a lack of presidential character. if this is how he handles the world now, just think what mitt romney might do as president. >> in a statement, liz smith says quote it's clear on every measure, mitt romney fails the commander in chief test. well, just about two hours from now, romney will deliver that speech at virginia military institute. peter alexander is traveling with the romney campaign in lexington, virginia and joins me now and peter, this is a speech that is largely about the middle east. we're not hearing a lot about asia, a lot about russia. this is really going to be focused on syria, iran, libya and afghanistan. is it not? >> yeah, i think you're exactly right. going to focus on the middle east and northern africa, libya specifically. mitt romney as you noted, wil
profoundly unhelpful with syria and the obama administration has called the russians out on that. on iran, the russias were instrumental in getting us the u.n. security council resolution in 2010, that put in place unprecedented administrations that the bush administration could only have dreamed of. >> i have to leave it there. former member of the administration, thanks for coming on. >> happy to be here. >>> wall street hit a five-year high. market rundown is next. plus, critical county. live in ohio. one of those 15 counties that may decide the presidential election. but first, today's trivia question. who was the first vice president to not become president? tweet me the answer. first correct answer will get a warm bucket of spit from us. no, the answer and more is coming up. we'll be right back. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about low-cost investing. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 at schwab, we're committed to offering you tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 low-cost investment options-- tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 like our exchange traded funds, or etfs tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 which now have the lowest tdd#: 1-800
that the obama administration's policies had left the middle east a more dangerous place than it was four years ago. i can't wait to ask you about that, richard. >> fair enough. >> that speech was fascinating. >> new polls were taken after the debate. what did they will get to it as you zip it. >> whoa. >> the race is tightening with four weeks to go, a new pew research center survey shows romney leading obama 49% to 45% in a national head-to-head match-up among likely voters. those most committed to participating in the november election. there is good news for the romney campaign in michigan, a state where president obama was leading by ten points last month according to the detroit free press. after the debate, the same poll has the president's lead down to three points, well within the margin of error. perhaps the biggest gain for the romney campaign comes from that pew survey, which shows the republican candidate has made huge gains with women voters now tied with the president 47% to 47%. just a month ago, the president had a 56-38 advantage with women voters. what's going on? >> let's st
in the obama administration. and peter feaver served on the national security council staff during the george w. bush administration. he's now a professor of political science and public policy at duke university. we thank you both for being with us. peter feaver, to you first. we heard governor romney today criticize the president broadly for not rejecting strongly enough america's influence in the world. yet when it came to specifics, we didn't hear many details. so let me just ask you about a couple of different places in the world. what about when it comes to iran. what exactly governor romney be doing differently right now? >> well, this is the criticism that the obama campaign has leveled at the romney campaign for not being detailed and specific enough. when it comes to iran, the president hasn't laid out a red line that he said clearly he would enforce. when asked to be precise about what it means for iran not to possess a nuclear weapon, the articulation of the red line, he's been vague and says he doesn't want to parse it further. i think there's a certain element of ambiguity about w
president obama, one of the things he did at the start of this administration was invest in strengthening our alliances and partnerships that have brought the international community around this strategy. this isn't just u.s. strategy. this is a tremendous international effort to impose these sanctions. the iranian currency has lost tremendous value over the last several weeks. the sanctions are biting and the policy is moving us in the right direction. >> woodruff: peter feaver, i do want to turn to several different parts. maybe we can come back to iran in a minute. on iraq we heard governor romney say that president obama moved too abruptly to pull the troops out. what would governor romney do differently? how much longer wouldhe have left u.s. troops in iran? >> i think if romney had been president for the last four years he would have handled the negotiations with iraq very differently. he would have been personally involved. president obama delegated it. and refused to maintain the close relations with prime minister maliki that president bush had. he delegated it to vice president
an opening. as written in the wall street journal. the biggest calamity for obama of course, the administration handling of the tragic attack after two weeks of tiptoe around a definitive answer, they released a statement saying that the attacks in libya from deliberate organized attacks carried out by extremists. >> intelligence community put out a lengthy document that explained the timeline here. i think in the days afterwards it was not clear that this was a terrorist attack as their investigation was conducted and they got more information. that's a determination that they made. >> eliot: some romney advisers think this is an area of weakness of obama upon which they should pounce. others say they should stay with the economy. joining me now former assistant to president clinton for national security affairs. thank you for joining us. >> a pleasure, eliot. >> eliot: let's start with the important question. what do we know about al-qaeda's attacks in the consulate in ben gassy. >> this was a well planned attack. somebody had been casing the consulate in benghazi for some
of the obama administration. >> kevin i want to get to southeast specifics on the issues but first i want to ask you about that video that jan just showed in herpes a speech obama made in 2007 which was covered by all of the networks who had reporters there at the time. >> right. >> do you think that video is relevant? >> well, i think a lot of people -- voters have to look at that video and have to make up their mind on that individually. i think what's much horse important to this debate right now are the president's policies. the president's record over the four years. that's going to be most important topic on stage tonight. >> but, kevin, as you know -- >> his record on the economy and putting people back network that hasn't happened in the last four years. that's the more important debate. voters will be watching this conversation that we have tonight and they are going to ask themselves the question do i want another four years of the status quo that president obama is offering or do i want to set the country on a new course as it relates to job creation, a new course as it relates
admission that the middle-class has been hurt by the obama administration's policies. congressman paul ryan pounced. >> of course the middle-class has been buried, buried by regulations, buried by taxes, buried by borrowing, they're being buried by the obama administration's economic failures. >> biden later tried to dig himself out. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and the ryan supported. >> reporter: except for debate prep, a politics-free day for contenders. romney had lunch at chipotle. president obama paid a visit to the hoover dam. both have spent hours in debate sessions and both have challenges. aide say the president is working on keeping his answers short to not sound like professor obama. in order to win over undecided voters, romney needs to appear relatable and offer specifics on his agenda. >> he has to find something more than just discussing how bad the economy is or blaming the president for how much the economy continues to struggle. >> reporter: all the prep works come done to just 90 minutes. both candidates, one stage in a high-stakes showdown. k
investors. the suit is the first to be filed under a group set up by the obama administration to investigate misconduct that caused the 2008 financial crisis. jp morgan says it will will contest the suit. and notes that the alleged actions took place before it bought bear stearns. >>> american express is paying $112 million in refunds and fines to settle accusations it duped customers. federal regulators say the credit card company charged unlawful late fees and deceived card holders into paying off old debts or buying extra card services. they will refund about $85 million to about 250,000 customers. >>> and the holiday shopping forecast isn't frightful, but it's also not so delightful. the national retail federation is expecting americans to spend a little more than 4% more than they did last year, but that is less of an increase than we've seen in the past two years, and the smallest growth we've seen since 2009. so don't expect to get much more this year. >> i was going to say as long as i get everything on my list from you, ashley, it will be okay. >> that's all that matters, right? dit

something about libya, say, reporting about how maybe obama administration -- especially if you do not already like obama, maybe that will help inform your choice of whether to vote for him, but not, it seems lately, because it has given you the information or the tools to think about what ought to happen in libya or what our policy in libya ought to be. we have soared to come to present foreign policy coverage as character coverage. i think that those categories in a way get confused. you have separated them out. are we learning about the world when we read that article? or are we learning that romneycare is about the little guy or whether obama is brave? i think it is a tricky question, because you might, indeed, get information you feel you need to vote for this person or that person, but there is also the other legal issue about learning about what the article is ostensibly about, what are the actual problems in the world beyond the election, what they might be, and i do not think that the character thing is negligible. it is important if somebody cares about the little guy. th
, there has been some bipartisanship on east asia. so the obama administration after flirting with a dierent policyn 20 returned to an emphasis on asia that had been there in the previous administration. there was an emphasis that involved strengthening our alliances with japan and india and presenting to china a clear choice about we will cooperate if they play by the rules of the game, but we will also demand that they play by the rules of the game. that strategy, which obama came to rather late, has been the strategy that we followed in the past. that's the straty that wl follow inhe future. the problem with president obama's pivot to asia is not that he's focusing on asia. he's underresourced the visit to asia. the big difference between a second term for president obama and a romney administration would be that romney's pledge to beef up the u.s. navy, which is the key service of interest to strengthen our position in asia. i think that's an important difference. >> woodruff: what about that resource question, michelle flour foi? noy. >> i think it requires reinvestment in the relation
on the left, saying the middle class has been ignored or the obama administration hasn't done enough for the middle class. former tarp inspector neil barofsky, he goes after the treasury secretary geithner, he gets fired up questioning if geithner should have been in a position to do what he's done. >> i think there's a strong argument that perhaps he never should have been hired in the first place. i mean he was part of the regulatory failure that produced the financial crisis, as president of the new york fed and i think certainly given the policy choices, there's a strong case that he should have been fired, but, you know, on the other hand, it's not as if he was making these decisions in a vacuum. i have no reason to believe that the white house wasn't behind all these policy decisions as well. connell: it's a pretty long interview but worth watching, foxbusiness.com from adam shapiro. dagen: be careful what you wish for in terms of a replacement. oil paring some of its losses after a surprise decline in the u.s. oil supplies last week. connell: let's go to sandra smith, has the

percentages. has the obama administration been successful at branding the medicare plan of the republicans as voucher care and are senior citizens moving away because they're afraid of the medicare changes? >> the ryan budget plan existed in terms of the 2010 election when republicans won 65 plus seniors by 21 points. part of the dynamic that exists here is, in fact, seniors are really unhappy with president obama's health care plan. what you see is this significant concern handling medicare, four years ago republicans would lose that by 25 points. now it's down in low single digits where republicans made significant progress. that is reflected in the medicare poll. >> why are senior citizens in the polls moving away from mitt romney toward barack obama. >> i guess i'm not seeing that in the survey the way you are. when i take a look at issue handling and medicare and seeing how we dramatically neutralize that issue, i'm not seeing it the same way. >> i think medicare is one question. the other question is senior citizens and who do they support? the movement is definitely toward barack ob
republicans have charged the obama administration rejected requests for enhanced security at the site. clinton cautioned today against a rush to judgment. >> at the beginning of any kind of inquiry or investigation there are going to be different perspectives, different points of view, people trying to present what they believe applies to a certain set of circumstances. but i've also seen how important it is to get everything lined up and analyzed. >> holman: clinton also promised the investigative process will be transparent. more than two million factory workers walked off the job in indonesia today, in a one-day strike demanding better benefits. hundreds of thousands marched through the streets of a jakarta suburb. they called for an increase in the minimum wage plus health insurance and social security for all employees. workers also urged the government to revise a policy that lets companies hire temporary workers without benefits. there's new fuel for the long- running debate over affirmative action in college admissions. a new study by the century foundation concludes schools can have d
. >> and, james, have you reported on an internal dispute deep inside the obama administration and the intelligence community over this attack? >> yeah. we have previously reported that senior members of the president's national security team made a secret finding on september the 12th that benghazi was a terrorist attack. and, yet, it was three days later that u.n. ambassador susan rice, you will recall, went on all the sunday shows to insist that the killings were the result of a spontaneous mob. well, the next day fox news has learned high level intelligence officials has reached out to several independent security contractors and had them review these images of the mortar damage at that annex. the contractor sited the angles and fragmentation patterns to detect two more mortar teams using g.p.s. devices to score hits. armed with these outside assessments, the intel officials internally rebutted susan rice's claims and the very next day matt olson, head of the national counter terrorism center ended this internal debate when he testified publicly to the united states senate
for the republicans. and they were talking about cooking the books, et cetera. was the obama administration didn't spike the ball, because we know that there is a long way to go yet, despite the good news. it's indication that we're beginning to clean up the mess that was left to barack obama when he was sworn in. but that, no, that we're not satisfied, but it certainly is an indication, one that the republicans simply won't recognize that progress is, in fact, being made despite their efforts to try to talk down the economy, to try to sabotage any legislation that would actually put people to work. so i think they can't deny the math. >> all right. we'll have to leave it at that. democratic congresswoman jan schakowsky from the obama campaign, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. >>> there's been a lot of talk about which mitt romney have shown up at wednesday's presidential debate. but many say they've seen that mitt romney before. coming up, we'll talk to a person who says she debated that mitt romney back in 2002, massachusetts democrat shannon o'brien. >>> sky-high, the price of g
the obama administration politicized the intelligence in the immediate aftermath of the attack to fit a convenient storyline that it was spontaneous and not premeditated terrorism. >> i argue the administration made some serious mistakes when they highlighted the video, escalated its credibility to the presidential level and then took it on tv in pakistan with u.s. taxpayer dollars. >> reporter: rogers, who told fox one day after the attack that it was, indeed, terrorism, saying the statement from the director of national intelligence on friday appeared to be an effort to obscure the facts. >> part of the problem is this circling of the wagons that is really concerning about this. again, americans need to understand the truth, and the facts are what the facts are. and the intelligence is what the intelligence is. >> reporter: fox news asked an administration official why it chose ambassador rice to discuss the sensitive intelligence details on five sunday talk shows over current career intelligence officials including adviser john brennan, national security adviser donilon, james clap
the obama administration on foreign policy yesterday. during a speech in virginia he claimed that the risk of conflict in the middle east is higher now than it was when president obama took office, and he urge add more aggressive u.s. role in the syrian civil war. >>> meantime president obama campaigning on the west coast sounded an urgent note in his appeal to voters. he told supporters in san francisco they must be almost obsessive in getting out the vote. the president and mitt romney returned to the crucial state of ohio later today to campaign in that critical state. >>> first lady michelle obama is sharing a bit of what goes on behind the closed doors of the white house. in a "nightline" interview she told abc's cynthia mcfadden she rarely steps foot in fact in the west wing and steers clear of trying to influence her husband's policies, instead sticking to her own causes like fighting childhood obesity. mrs. obama also talked about how comfortable the president is around women. >> this is one of the things i love about barack. he is so used to having strong women in his life. you kn
optimistic about where we're going. and another very important point for the obama administration. >> so, john, maria is right in part because it has taken away an important talking point from the romney campaign. he can no longer say the president promised to get the unemployment rate under 8%, now at 7.8%. we have one more jobs report to go so who knows. what can mitt romney do to -- for lack of a better term, spin the numbers. >> well, i think people see this and say is that really the best we can do. i think everybody is happy when we see any movement. but, let's face it, unemployment is right under 8%. we aren't seeing -- i believe 500,000 jobs in this report were part time workers. people want jobs and they want even more than jobs they want careers and they want hope. right now they don't see that. they see a president is doing nothing about jobs going overseas, they see a president who adds a small business tax at the time they can least afford it, they see college graduates, half of them coming out and can't find the jobs they want based upon the degrees that they have. and so i
in a second obama administration. he is very much looking forward to this. >> you have been pressing the romney campaign for specifics, today we got one specifics suggesting maybe there would be a cap on deductio at $17,000 for mortgage interest deductions, charitable contributions, that's a pretty specific number, what do you think about that? >> i think that the net result is still the same. that is specific, but he has not told us how he will do that without raising taxes on the middle class. even if you're capping deductions, separating them into different buckets with different caps on them. you're still raising taxes on the middle class. even his own economists that he relies on says you can't cut taxes by $5 trillion out paying for it by cutting deductions for people making $200,000 and less. that's just a fact. you can't do it. even if you close every single deduction for people making over $200,000, or $250,000 for families, you're still a trillion short. so he has to tell us how he will do this without increasing taxes on the middle class. so far the math does not add up. >
administration. now, barack obama had said that all we're doing in afghanistan is air-raiding villages and killing civilians. and such a reckless, reckless comment and untrue comment, again, hurts our cause. that's not what we're doing there. we're fighting terrorists, and we're securing democracy, and we're building schools for children there so that there is opportunity in that country, also. there will be a big difference there, and we will win in -- in afghanistan, also. >> senator, you may talk about nuclear use, if you'd like, and also about afghanistan. >> i'll talk about both. with afghanistan, facts matter, gwen. the fact is that our commanding general in afghanistan said today that a surge -- the surge principles used in iraq will not -- well, let me say this again now -- our commanding general in afghanistan said the surge principle in iraq will not work in afghanistan, not joe biden, our commanding general in afghanistan. he said we need more troops. we need government-building. we need to spend more money on the infrastructure in afghanistan. look, we have spent more money

in the obama administration how are they prepping vp biden for this and how might he play things differently now as a result? >> there has to be more specific prosecution of the argument against mitt romney calling the romney team out on some of these specifics whether it's on tax cuts or on medicare. i think one of the interesting dynamics to watch in the vice presidential debate is there's a difference between what paul ryan believes and what mitt romney believes and that is on these, on some of these important issues about taxes and health care and medicare. so that's an area where you can imagine vice president biden working to press ryan on the details and the inconsistencies between the two of them. >> really interesting point. thanks so much. >>> coming up in our next half hour, round 2009 the presidential debate and how body language is so important in determining the winner. >>> breaking news from rome. there's a verdict in the trial of pop benedict's former butler. paolo gabriele was convicted this morning of leaking the pope's private papers to a wrournlist. he's been sentenced to

. >> there's a question here about something president obama did, which is a stopgap policy, which was essentially to say, my administration is not going to enforce deportation of laws as they pertain to younger immigrants who were born here, a legal immigrant parents commit them to school, have you got in trouble. were not going to deport them. is that a good idea? >> it's absolutely a great idea. politically he was brilliant. romney said of changing his policy are now bidding him. it's a policy that matters. >> the obama administration has supported more undocumented and probably the last five administrations put together. and you would not expect that from a democratic administration. i'm not quite sure why they've been so forceful, but they have been. the people that rupert is talking about is they would carry to age three months in this country and their parents arms. did they break the law? i don't know how it's written, but technically they had no right to come across the border. they did, but in terms of culpability, i mean, come on. these are people were self-selected grou
